Amazing view in the beginning but the clouds rolled it. Go early and when it is not a rainy time. People were nice. The views and the chapel was very pretty. Would go again and next time would hike to 16k.

We arrived to the TeleferiQo about 10 am on a Tuesday. There were very few people taking the gondolas up to the mountain top. We were asked to wash our hands with soap and water before entering the building. Then we got our temperature checked and we went in to purchase the tickets. The tickets cost $8.50 per person. The funicular is set up just like a ski lift, with a number of gondolas continuously circling, so you don’t have to wait too long for the next one. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the top. Once we left the little cabin, one of the staff quickly sprayed it with disinfectant. It was definitely much cooler and windier at 4,000 meter height. Don’t forget to bring a windbreaker :) Also, keep in mind that weather in Quito area changes very quickly and unpredictably. If the morning has clear sky, it is a good sign that you should take the TeleferiQo up, otherwise, if it is too cloudy, you will not be able to enjoy the magnificent views of the city below you. As you exit the gondola, to your right you will see a little store with all sorts of merchandise, in the back of the store they have a “bridge” that stretches out into space. You could take some fun pictures there, and it costs only $1 per person to go out on that terrace. Afterwards, you can take a rather steep “stairway” higher up, where they have a swing set, also fun pictures to take, and a number of gazebos and benches to enjoy the view. If you are feeling truly adventurous, which we did not, you can take a hike up the mountain peak located beyond. A few people could be seen walking up that mountain. Apparently, it would take about 3 hours each way to climb up that summit. We spent about 2 hours at the top. Keep in mind that the air is much thinner at that altitude, so to those who are not accustomed to such conditions, walking up takes more effort. Also, one in every few gondolas has a bike rack attached to it, it seems that many people like to bring their bicycles up to the mountains to ride them at the top, or to take them down the slopes; there's a nice path one can use to ride or to walk to the bottom. Not sure how steep it is or how long it would take. We really loved the TeleferiQo, a great experience.

This fun to do and looks a little scary but it moves at a comfortable speed so its enjoyable. When you get to the top be sure to treat yourself to some hot chocolate. It is smart to take a sweater or jacket.

We enjoyed this attraction. It gets cold up top so make sure to bring a jacket. It was cloudy so we didn’t get to see the city but it was enjoyable nonetheless.
